N=6 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theories, M2-branes and their gravity duals

- O. Aharony, O. Bergman, D. Jafferis, J. Maldacena
- Physics
- 6 June 2008

We construct three dimensional Chern-Simons-matter theories with gauge groups U(N) × U(N) and SU(N) × SU(N) which have explicit = 6 superconformal symmetry. Using brane constructions we argue that… Expand

Fractional M2-branes

- O. Aharony, O. Bergman, D. Jafferis
- Physics
- 30 July 2008

We consider two generalizations of the = 6 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theories with gauge group U(N) × U(N). The first generalization is to = 6 superconformal U(M) × U(N) theories, and the… Expand

Large N Field Theories, String Theory and Gravity

- O. Aharony, S. Gubser, J. Maldacena, H. Ooguri, Y. Oz
- Physics
- 14 May 1999

We review the holographic correspondence between field theories and string/M theory, focusing on the relation between compactifications of string/M theory on Anti-de Sitter spaces and conformal field… Expand

Aspects of N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions

- O. Aharony, A. Hanany, K. Intriligator, N. Seiberg, M. Strassler
- Physics
- 15 March 1997

Abstract We consider general aspects of N = 2 gauge theories in three dimensions, including their multiplet structure, anomalies and non-renormalization theorems. For U (1) gauge theories, we discuss… Expand

3d dualities from 4d dualities

- O. Aharony, S. S. Razamat, N. Seiberg, Brian Willett
- Physics
- 16 May 2013

A bstractMany examples of low-energy dualities have been found in supersymmetric gauge theories with four supercharges, both in four and in three space-time dimensions. In these dualities, two… Expand

IR duality in d = 3 N = 2 supersymmetric USp (2Nc) and U(Nc) gauge theories

- O. Aharony
- Physics
- 30 March 1997

Abstract We suggest IR-dual descriptions for d = 3 N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories with gauge groups USp(2N2) and U(Nc) and matter in the fundamental representation. We relate this duality to the… Expand

Reading between the lines of four-dimensional gauge theories

- O. Aharony, N. Seiberg, Yuji Tachikawa
- Physics
- 2 May 2013

A bstractStarting with a choice of a gauge group in four dimensions, there is often freedom in the choice of magnetic and dyonic line operators. Different consistent choices of these operators… Expand

A holographic model of deconfinement and chiral symmetry restoration

- O. Aharony, J. Sonnenschein, S. Yankielowicz
- Physics
- 24 April 2006

Abstract We analyze the finite temperature behavior of the Sakai–Sugimoto model, which is a holographic dual of a theory which spontaneously breaks a U(Nf)L × U(Nf)R chiral flavor symmetry at zero… Expand
